"This series is written with the developer in mind. You
should be comfortable working with PHP and Web applications. You
don't need to be an expert to go through this series, but not a lot
of time will be spent explaining PHP syntax and Web application
concepts. If you're unfamiliar with either, but keen to learn, feel
free to dive right in. It wouldn't hurt to have some basic
understanding of digital video, but we'll explain most of what you
need to know."
